For occasional DIY use their power tools get the job done but not for industrial work. I once urgently needed a jigsaw to cut some plywood, I looked at a secondhand shop and the cheapest used was R1000 and not evens a premium brand. So I bought a Schultz at Checkers I think it was like R229 or something and it comes with 1 year guarantee. They are honest with what you are getting as they state on their boxes "for DIY use only" and their guarantee terms excludes commercial use.
How was it? Well, you get what you pay for, the blades are crap and I had to go back to buy a set of blades, which was like R60 for 14 I think. But it got the job done, you need a steadier hand to cut straight with these tools as it doesn't have anti-vibration as found on more expensive tools (Makita, Dewalt etc.), and I only used it that one time. But it would have been more costly if I had to take it to someone to cut or buy a used high-mileage machine that I can't sell to get the money back. Now even if I sell it for half of the R290 it cost me, I will still be happy.
